4.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but necessary..., September 28, 2009
This review is from: Canon Battery Grip BG-E6 (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
i bought this when there weren't any knockoff battery grips. if i buy another 5d II in the future, i'm probably getting a plastic knockoff grip for my 2nd camera.

the way i shoot, i HAVE to have a battery grip. i don't mind turning my wrist, but the time it saves me later straightening out all of my pictures makes it well worth it. plus, who can't use the extra battery life?

other than that, everything works exactly how it's supposed to. the grip matches up perfectly with the 5d mk II's body and stays tight/looks great. every once in a while i'll set it on my lap and accidentally take a few pictures or accidentally hit the shutter button while reviewing pictures...but all user error.

i rated this a 4 because it's a little expensive. granted, i paid $300 for mine and now you can get them almost 20% cheaper than that. if you can't afford it or don't want to...read reviews, you'll see there are some very good 3rd party plastic grips for the 5d II and decide for yourself if it's worth the extra $160 or not.
